I am not a cheese expert. I don’t like blue cheeses and would be happy eating edam. I do like savoury tasty types and love brie and camembert.

My husband on the other hand loves cheeses. He could easily spend $50 in a specialty cheese shop on special occasions. He particularly likes smelly ones that have matured  been left to rot in caves. Given his passion and expert-cheese in this area I got him to help me road test Moondarra Club Classic Cheddar.

Cheddar cheese is a relatively hard, pale-yellow-to-off-white cheese that is sometimes “sharp”. The cheddar originated in the English village of Cheddar which is in Sommerset. Cheddars are now produced throughout the world.

Cheddar is the most popular type of cheese in the UK, accounting for 51 percent of the country’s £1.9 billion annual cheese market. It is also the second-most-popular cheese in the USA (first place goes to mozzarella).

Moondarra Club Classic Cheddar

There are four flavours in the Moondarra Cheddar range to choose from: Chilli Club Cheddar, Lime & Cracked Pepper


Club Cheddar, Balsamic Vinegar & Onion Club Cheddar and Classic Club Cheddar.

We got to sample the Moondarra Club Classic Cheddar. The cheese expert really enjoyed it. It has a sharp and savoury flavour. He was genuinely impressed and I really enjoyed it too.

We enjoyed it in a baguette on a picnic and also mixed with grated edam and grilled on toast. Both were delicious. I also used it instead of parmesan in a family risotto. Moondarra have some other yummy recipe ideas for some of their other flavoured cheeses too. It would be great crumbled into an omelette or into any sort of tart.
